GRAND BLANC, Mich. – Tournament officials announced today that volunteer registration for the fourth annual The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren is now open to the public at www.theallychallenge.com/volunteers.
The 2021 Ally Challenge is scheduled for the week of August 23-29 at historic Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club.
“Volunteers play an essential role in every aspect of The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren and are vital to our goal of providing charitable dollars to the community,” said tournament director Matt Stepnes. “Thanks in large part to the efforts of this very special group of people, The Ally Challenge has raised nearly $3.2 million in support of local charities in the greater Flint area and beyond since the inaugural event in 2018. We are excited to open volunteer registration and so very thankful to continue working with such a selfless and dedicated team.”
Volunteers have a variety of different areas available to choose from during registration. These areas represent the many tasks required to conduct a PGA TOUR Champions Event. A description of each area is available at www.theallychallenge.com/volunteers.
All volunteers receive a uniform (consisting of a golf shirt and visor or cap), a commemorative pin, meals for each day they work and an official tournament credential. In addition, all volunteers are invited to attend a catered post-tournament party immediately following play on Sunday, August 29. To cover the cost of the volunteer package there is a fee of $45. These contributions represent an additional way volunteers help maximize the charitable donations the tournament will provide to the community.
The Ally Challenge will be one of the premier Regular Season events on PGA TOUR Champions in 2021, which will give way to the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs – a season-ending, three tournament series used to determine the TOUR’s season-long champion. Due to the circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, PGA TOUR Champions has combined its tournaments in 2020 and 2021 to form one season, and the next Charles Schwab Cup champion will be crowned in November 2021 at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship.
All three rounds of The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren will be broadcast on Golf Channel.
